7 / 10 - Outlast II
Apr 24, 2017

Outlast 2's scripted chases can grow frustrating, but its gripping atmosphere and unnerving sound design deliver unparalleled tension.

Only six years have passed since the wildly inventive Bulletstorm originally released, which may be why this update looks so good and plays so smoothly.

Andromeda's combat soars but its storytelling sputters, making the series' first venture into uncharted space a shaky but occasionally satisfying new adventure.

7 / 10 - Dead Rising 4
Dec 5, 2016

Dead Rising's core combat remains simplistic, but the expanded open world, compelling central mystery, and added combo weapons refresh the formula enough for some light, bloody fun.

8 / 10 - Dishonored 2
Nov 12, 2016

6 / 10 - Mafia 3
Oct 12, 2016

Though Mafia III's storytelling is exceptional in every way, it's not quite strong enough to compensate for dated gameplay, repetitive missions, and technical issues.

7 / 10 - Battleborn
May 6, 2016

The combat is frantic and tense, but often feels samey and superficial. The in-match leveling works wonderfully in the campaign, but can become problematic in multiplayer. The varied cast of heroes adds longevity, but the game still feels relatively content light. With so many moving parts that never quite gel, I found plenty of things to love but just as much to feel confused by and ambivalent about.
